Umeå University co-organises second Conference on Global Public Health in Colombo
July 3, 2014 - 00:00-July 4, 2014 - 00:00
The contact persons are Research Coordinator Raman Preet (photo) at Epidemiology and Global Health/Umeå International School of Public Health, Umeå University, and Prabhath Patabendi at ICRD.
The conference focuses on development agenda at a cross-roads, with education, equality and economy the three pillars as themes that push the global health agenda. Considering the fact that all health professions have stakes in the outcomes of any such deliberation the organisers expect more cross and multi-disciplinary representation than their first conference that was successfully held in December 2012 with delegates from 35 countries, both north and south of globe represented. The GPH conferences are planned and organized by young public health professionals with unconditional support from their eminent seniors.
